    “On the Spot: Adia Pickens, Best Smiles Winner at the Student Union Information Desk”

    So you think you have an award-winning smile?

    I think so. My mom paid a lot of money in Los Angeles to pay for my braces, so she thinks I have a great smile.

    You are in an emergency fire and you can only save one person, your best friend or your significant other?

    My significant other because it’s my significant other, depending if him and I are in marriage; if we are in a tiff, I don’t know. But if he is my real, exclusive significant other then he can provide me with some things my best friend can’t provide me, so depending on the situation.

    First car, what was it?

    Just got it about two and a half weeks ago and it is a 2010 Dodge Avenger, black metallic with two-tone leather.

    First song you, ya’ know, bumped?

    I was one of those people who was not really into the playing music thing so I am trying to think of the who, when and where … let’s just say it was some type of R&B song, probably R. Kelly or something, who knows.

    What is something that makes you smile?

    Sounds really mushy, but spending time with my mom. I went back home to L.A. for NBA All Star Weekend and my mom surprised myself and my boyfriend to be part of this 3-D viewing party where we were the only people in the entire world to watch the game in 3-D. Seeing my mom really makes me smile, really makes me happy, I’m a mama’s girl, it’s just me and her. We have our tiffs, but that’s another story.
